The 2019 Huawei MateBook X Pro Is Still the Better MacBook Pro with Windows

When Huawei released the original MateBook X Pro last year, I’m not entirely sure the company knew what it had created. Huawei has only been in the laptop business for about three years, a relatively short time compared to industry veterans like Apple, Dell, Lenovo and others. So when it made a premium 14-inch laptop…Read more...

You Probably Missed This Major Battery Recall Because of the Government Shutdown

Even though the government shutdown ended more than a month and a half ago, we’re still feeling its effects. That’s because, despite HP issuing an expansion for a battery recall back in January, the notice wasn’t posted to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website until earlier this week due to the…Read more...

Uh Oh, Looks Like Google's Hardware Team Might Be in Trouble

Over the past few years, Google has been pushing deeper into the hardware business with products like the Pixelbook, Pixel Slate, multiple Google Homes, and of course, Pixel phones, with the latter getting a big boost thanks to Google’s $1.1 billion acquisition of tech and personnel from HTC last year.Read more...

Lenovo's External USB-C Display Could Be on Every Laptop User's Wishlist

Portable monitors for laptops aren’t an entirely new class of gadget, but prior to the widespread adoption of USB-C, they were always kind of a pain in the ass. That’s because you needed one cord for data, and another cord for power, with older models often ending up too big and bulky for most people to want to carry…Read more...

The Best MacBook Pro Alternative Got a Refresh and a Cheaper Sibling

When Huawei released that MateBook X Pro last year, it took me by surprise. Despite coming from a company known more for making smartphones than computers, even after testing a number of other laptops, I kept coming back to the MateBook X Pro as my favorite ultraportable of the year.Read more...

Dell's Gaming Laptop is Ugly, Powerful and $800 Right Now

Someday gaming laptops won’t look designed by a 14-year-old edgelord. This utopian future is, unfortunately, still a few years away. For now, we’ll just have to settle for affordable, powerful and, yes, ugly machines like this Dell G5 Gaming Laptop.Read more...

Razer Blade Stealth Review: Compact, Powerful, Beautiful (and Pink!)

If you opt to go for the quartz version of the new Razer Blade Stealth, you may be distracted by the pink. The keys, the trackpad, the bezels—hell even the desktop is pink. Not “rose gold” like an Apple product, but pink like a Barbie box in the toy aisle. But do me a favor and look past the pink (the Stealth is also…Read more...

Huawei's MacBook Air Clone For Windows Is Nearly Flawless

Last year, Huawei took a big shot at Apple with the MateBook X Pro, a laptop that encapsulated some of the best things about MacBook Pro line while ignoring more gimmicky features like the Touch Bar and Apple’s frustrating butterfly keyboard. So for 2019, Huawei made a new mainstream 13-inch laptop meant to take down…Read more...

MSI's GS75 Proves Powerful Gaming Laptops Don't Need All That Bulk

As much as I love beastly, no compromises gaming laptops like MSI’s GT75, sometimes just thinking about systems like that makes my back hurt. I mean, who wants to carry around a 10-pound notebook that needs not one, but two massive power bricks just to get optimal performance?Read more...

MSI's Latest Laptops Are Smaller, Sturdier, and Some Even Vibrate

When MSI released the GS65 last year, it took a risk. Instead of making something massively powerful like the GT75, MSI swapped out its typical red-and-black color scheme and focused on a thin-and-light to create a more portable, but still fast all-rounder. And as a result, the GS65 became the company’s best selling…Read more...

Acer's New Swift 7 Is So Thin It Doesn't Seem Real

At some point, Acer is going to have to give up its yearly quest to make the Swift 7 just a little bit slimmer, but that time hasn’t come yet, because at CES 2019 Acer has once again triumphed over physics to create something stupendously skinny.Read more...

Dell Might Have Just Perfected the XPS 13

Dell’s XPS 13 has been one of the best ultraportable laptops on the market for years now. It’s sleek, it’s stylish, and it’s often cheaper than an equivalent Mac. But recent models have had one glaring flaw: a webcam located below the screen that made you look like Shrek every time you used it.Read more...

Y'all Ruined One of Lenovo's Best ThinkPads

Okay you jack asses. We need to fight. Because starting this year the Lenovo Yoga Thinkpad X1—Lenovo’s 360-hinge version of the practically perfect X1 Carbon, is dropping the very light and durable all carbon fiber body and replacing it with heavier and lamer aluminum.

Samsung's Latest Laptops Want to Win You Over With Style

When it comes to mainstream laptops, they all sort of have the same specs. You get a CPU from Intel (or maybe AMD), memory and storage from Micron, Kingston, WD, or Samsung, and maybe a graphics card from Nvidia. So how else are computer makers supposed to entice potential buyers? Well on Samsung’s latest laptops at…Read more...

The Asus ROG Mothership Is an Overpowered Surface for Gamers

When I heard Asus was bringing a laptop called the Mothership to CES 2019, I knew I had to see it. Actually, calling it a laptop doesn’t quite do this thing justice, because it’s one part 2-in-1, it’s one part gaming machine, it’s loaded up with more RGB lights than a UFO, and I absolutely love it.Read more...

This Laptop Has a Notch

Little by little, smartphone design has been making an impact on laptops thanks to features like touchscreens, built-in fingerprint readers, face-scanning cameras, and more.

Oh Come On, Apple Could Have Made the 'New' MacBook Air Years Ago

There’s this weird sort of fervor that surrounds the MacBook Air that I’ve never fully understood. Sure, when Steve Jobs pulled the first one out of a manila envelope in 2008, it was cool as hell. But in the 10 years since then, Apple’s once industry-leading laptop was neglected and abandoned to the point that it…Read more...

Lenovo's Dual-Screen Yoga Book Is Painfully Close to a Breakthrough

Laptops haven’t changed much since 2012. Sure, they’re a bit sleeker, more powerful, and have slightly better battery lives. But after Microsoft conjured up the original Surface with its kickstand and detachable keyboard in 2012, it’s largely been five plus years of iterative improvements. That doesn’t mean companies…Read more...
